Oooh Hello!!

Right, here's the thing.
I have spent so long trying to work out whether I want a purple page or I want to give the impression of sophistication with a less out there colour, I've worn myself out!
However, this is a brief hello and a how do I make this work kind of a blog...
What's it about? Why am I doing it? Well, first off, because I locked myself out of Twitter permanently and secondly because even Facebook doesn't give me enough room to chatter on and I can't just SHUT UP like other people.

Also, and this is really important, my life seems to be at a proper grown-up turning point - I'm 44, 3 stone overweight, Diabetic and lazy.  Oh and my last cholesterol reading was an 'impressive' 8.1... at 44 that is (apparently) no joke.  So I have to change a lot of habits, make a lot of choices and do a lot of new stuff.  I don't know if anyone it will be of use to will come and stick a head round my blog-door but  it might just be useful.  It will certainly keep me quiet and F won't have to listen to me rattling on so much... hmm.

SO, this is going to be about my adventures at the Gym, with my medication (please note, I have spared you the details of the revolting early days side effects), and in my new 'healthy' life... Let's see what shakes down shall we?


  1. Ohh hello and welcome to the blogsphere

  2. Thanks, Jason, how kind :)

  3. thing...Impressed?? If I am able to post then WELL DONE - you have made a fantastic start. Keep it up and you will absolutely amaze yourself (and the medics)I'm sure. Big love! Pip xxxx

  4. Welcome. I'm 42 and finally trying to go on a health kick. I haven't done any exercise for twenty years, I bought a bike recently and I'm loving it. Good luck, my advice is find something you enjoy doing xx

  5. Hi Christina!
    Sounds like we are at a similar 'life' point. Glad to hear you are enjoying it. I am planning to update later with a new post on my progress and just how much I am enjoying things.
    I'm mid-dissertation writing at the moment so it may be a brief post but I hope you'll read my update and share yours too.
    S :)
